Catalina Barroso-Luque and Feronia Wennborg – “Blue Egg Love Child”
CCA Theatre, from 7pm Saturday 26th August.
Tickets: Pay what you can from the CCA Box Office
Blue Egg Lovechild is a narrative sound piece which imagines the creation of the world after lovers Day and Night accidentally break a small robin’s egg. The piece draws from research into creation myths, focusing on cycles of transformation and the imaginary landscapes in which these stories take place. The story’s environmental elements play the main characters in the work, with aural and vocal elements moving across four speakers to create highly sensory sonic environments which are equally salacious, wrathful and bright.
Blue Egg Love Child is produced by Catalina Barroso-Luque and Feronia Wennborg with support from the Nordic Culture Fund and the Nordic Art Association. The work was mixed at Elektronmusikstudion (SE). The artists previously collaborated on R-22, an audio narrative commission for Wysing Arts Centre which was subsequently presented at Radiophrenia.
